Quote of the Day #115 - Augustine


This is a quote from Henry Bettenson's translation (1972) of Augustine's book City of God:
That City, in which it has been promised that we shall reign, differs from this earthly city as widely as the sky from the earth, life eternal from temporal joy, substantial glory from empty praises, the society of angels from the society of men, the light of the Maker of the sun and moon from the light of the sun and moon.
~Augustine (City of God (Penguin Classics), 1984, Book V, Chapter 17)
